VII Academy

The VII Academy is working to diversify photography and journalism by funding tuition-free long-form visual media education in underrepresented communities worldwide. Our work includes funding 3-9-month-long media courses online, from Boston to Vanuatu by way of Mosul and Dhaka to train a new generation of visual journalists, and funding post-graduate scholarships to train a new generation of teachers. We teach in multiple languages, including English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Serbo-Croat, and Russian. We train and support men and women working under severe conditions, such as asylum seekers in Bosnia, and photographers in Myanmar. With The VII Foundation, we provide online education and advanced professional learning available to anyone with an internet connection through VII Insider.
